2006 Dodge Ram The blower motor will not blow. No voltage at the resistor. Is there a relay in the system? All fuses are good. Thanks for the help.

Yes, there is a blower motor relay located in the PDC box under the hood. It is a black box with a removable cover, and the underside of the cover will show the correct relay location.

Where is the blower motor relay located

Under the passenger side of the dash is the blower resister .This is most likely the cause they tend to burn up and your blower stops working.:)Also look for the connector going to the blower motor in the same location it is probably burnt on the end also.

Access location of front heater blower motor

It located behind the dash on the Passenger side.
And yes you can easily do this yourself saving you alot of money! Have you first checked the Front Blower Motor Relay located in the IPM Relay and Fuse Box located inside the engine compartment? Remove the cover. The location identification is located on the back (inside) side of the Cover. You can switch-out a similiar size and shape Relay and check the operation. If the Blower now works then the Relay was bad and needs to be replaced. The Motor and Resistor cost alot more money than the Relay.
Before we do this: What is the Motor doing? Nothing? OR DOES IT WORK ON HIGH ONLY? If the Motor works on High only then it is not the Motor but the Blower (Fan) Motor Resistor. This is located near the Motor. It is identified by 3 to 4 wires going into it. Remove the two (2) retaining nuts/metal screws and remove. Disconnect the wiring connection and replace. I don't want you to replace the Motor and find out you wasted your money when it was the Resistor.
It could be also both the Motor and the Resistor.
Direction to remove/replace the Blower Motor:
1. Disconnect the Negative cable from the Battery and wait two minutes. This is to de-energize the Air Bag System which you will be working near.
2. Remove the Glovebox.
3. Remove the four (4) hex screws holding on the Blower Motor Cover.
4. Remove the three (3) nuts/screws holding in the Blower Motor. Make sure you support the Motor, as it will drop down.
5. Disconnect the electrical connection.
Installation is the reverse of the above.
Check operations before putting the Glove Box Back on.

It doesn't blow off heat was working fine yesterday and just suddenly stopped working

Check the Front Blower Motor Relay located in the IPM Relay and Fuse Box. It's location should be identified on the back side of the cover. There are other exact Relays (like the Spare Relay or the adjacent: Rear Blower Motor Relay or Defogger Relay) that you can switch out and check operations. If the Front works now but not the Rear, it is the Relay and should be replaced.

Blower motor stopped working.

Go to this site and you can get a copy of your owners manual. Just pic the owner's manual link in the left side task bar.
The relay is located in the interior fuse panel. It should show you a diagram of the fuse panel in the owners manual.
